Canada has protected much of their most beautiful land and hikes through National and Provincial Parks. This means that hikers have some of the most pristine nature on earth to explore as they hike through the Canadian Rockies, the interior of BC and the BC Coast mountains. Seeing game is also common as you hike in Canada.
Best Hikes in British Columbia
The best hikes in Canada take you through towns like Banff, Lake Louise, Waterton, Canmore, Jasper and Whistler. The National Parks are enormous, and away from the towns there is almost no development – just you, a hiking trail and beauty. While most people know these world famous National Parks, there are still hiking areas that are mostly known only to locals, like Strathcona Provincial Park on Vancouver Island or the Kananaskis series of Provincial Parks south of Banff.
